Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Men in Black III

Posted: Updated:

Such a garden of delights for this Memorial Day weekend! First, we pay tribute to horror icon Christopher Lee on his 90th birthday, as Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski and Lawrence French highlight their favorite Lee films and Dan Persons chips in with a memorable TV moment.

Then we delve deeply into the weekend's major release, Men in Black III, the return of the frenetic secret agents vs. aliens comedy that reunites actors Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones with director Barry Sonnenfeld and, courtesy of a time-travel plot, introduces Josh Brolin as a young T.L. Jones. The film was rumored to have no shortage of problems during the filming process (even discounting New Yorkers' complaints about Will Smith's Taj Mahal of a dressing trailer), but does the final project transcend the behind-the-scenes turmoil? Steve, Larry, and Dan discuss what's good and bad in the film, and throw in a discussion of the logic behind building a prison on the Moon.

Plus: Steve and Larry give their capsule reviews of Oren Peli's return to horror, Chernobyl Diaries, and what's coming in theaters.
